Leonard Fournette and Tom Brady are being heavily praised this week.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers star running back announced on Twitter that he and Tom Brady are donating their jerseys to Damar Hamlin’s fundraiser.
“Today we are auctioning off our jersey all proceeds will be going to Damar fundraiser #3,” Fournette wrote.
The entire NFL world has come together to support Damar Hamlin as he continues to recover from his scary injury.
As of Friday, Hamlin is said to have made a “remarkable recovery” and is able to talk after having his breathing tube removed overnight, the Bills said in a tweet update. In a follow-up tweet, the Bills said that Hamlin even joined the Friday morning team meeting by FaceTime, and told them “love you, boys.”
The 24-year-old Hamlin was still listed Thursday in critical condition in the intensive care unit of the University of Cincinnati Medical Center. Hamlin’s recovery continues to trend in a positive direction after his heart stopped while making what appeared to be a routine tackle in the first quarter of a game against the Bengals on Monday night.
The second-year player spent his first two days in the hospital under sedation to allow his body to recover, and on a ventilator to assist his breathing.
He still has a long way to go, but the news has been nothing but positive.
